In our video series Communication is Key, we’ve been digging deep into high level communicating. We want you to be comfortable and successful in this business, and to do that you have to speak with enthusiasm, sincerity, and skill.
Since you’ve had some time to start implementing the ideas presented in our Communication is Key video series, can I ask you to do me a favor? Let’s revisit the questions we started our series with.
Ask yourself these questions before you start your next conversation:
Have the answers changed since the last time you asked yourself?
Can you already see some differences in your inflection, tonality, or melody?
You know we don’t just speak with our mouths. Let’s take a look at really reading people. Most of us don’t even realize how much we are saying through body language. It speaks louder and faster than words, and can either connect you with someone instantly, or repel them equally as fast.
I invite you to watch this week’s video, and pay close attention to Ernest.
In order to learn to read other people’s body language, you must first be aware of your own.
Watch people, and mimic their posture, expressions, and positioning. Be aware.
How do you feel?
What emotions and thoughts are you giving off in this position?
Remember, communication is only 7% words. So, what are you saying with the rest of yourself?
